Woodstock Site: Museum Offers the Sixties Experience, Man

by Associated Press

The Museum at Bethel Woods is opening June 2 at the site of the 1969 Woodstock concert, located about 90 minutes north of New York City, and will offer exhibits, personal stories, multimedia experiences and programs about the music, fashion and political protests of the 1960s.

The original three-day festival, pictured, epitomized the era's counterculture and drew hundreds of thousands to hear Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Joni Mitchell and many other performers.

The museum is part of the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, an outdoor performing arts complex. Performers scheduled for this summer include Cyndi Lauper, the B-52s, Ringo Starr, the New York Philharmonic, Donna Summer, The Klezmatics and the Boston Pops.
